Melody Hekmat, Yoga Teacher

21 August 2018

I discovered this gorgeous little lady recently with her yoga eye candy filled instagram feed! Melody is an experienced Jivamukti yoga teacher with 800 hours qualification, for anyone who hasn't practiced this form of yoga before, it's a must, a combination hatha, vinyasa and mediation. 
As well as Jivamukti, Melody also practises Kundalini, Ashtanga and Iyengar - you'll find this little beauty at KXU, Triyoga and Bodyism.

We caught up on the back streets of Chelsea for a very fun shoot in the sun!

What do you think the world needs more of right now?

-OF course LOVE... always. As cliche as it is. And generosity.
It’s not that there is lack of food in the world, we waist so much everyday, without even realising it. It’s becomes there is a lack of love, it’s because of greed.

An act of kindness and generosity goes a long way...

Favourite studios to practice at in London?

Sangye yoga school, anytime of the day you go to practice you granted a good class.
Also triyoga and Kxu for variety of styles and the quality of teaching.

Where do love to hangout / eat in London?

Most of the time I hang out where I work and it’s usually in Notting hill.
I love Bodyism cafe in Notting hill, their Asai bowls are the best in London.

What books have changed your perception in one way or another?

Alchemist by Paulo coelho, I read it probably 20 years a go before I moved to London.
The whole journey teaches you to listen and to follow your heart and dreams;
we should always seize the opportunities life offers in the pursuit of whatever makes us happy.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
